James Stewart Has Baby, Returns to Motocross at Millville

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart missed the Southwick round of Motocross last weekend due to the birth of his first child, son Tabiahs, who was born Saturday morning in Florida.

But following a week off – and missing multiple other rounds due to injury – the two-time Supercross Champion will return to the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in Millville, Minn., for round 8 of 12 this weekend – the Spring Creek national.

Yoshimura Suzuki Team Manager Mike Webb says: “We celebrate with James the newest addition to the Stewart family,” Webb said. “I’m sure some teams will be looking to sign the little guy before he’s out of diapers. Even though James has stayed with his family waiting for the birth of their baby, he’s been on his RM-Z practicing and he’s ready to get back to racing.”

The year has been nothing but heartache for the Yoshimura team; not only was Stewart injured, but also teammate Blake Baggett, who re-injured his collarbone during a crash at Southwick. The substitute rider – Matt Bisceglia – was also injured during a crash at Southwick, which will force him to miss Millville MX; he is expected to return August 13 at Unadilla.

Stewart will be the sole Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 pilot at Millville MX.

Webb says “It’s a tough break to lose Blake for the season. He’s been such a warrior fighting back and racing with injury and pushing himself all the way to some solid finishes. We couldn’t be more pleased with his efforts. Matt’s been doing a great job filling in and we look forward to his return at Unadilla.”

Live coverage for Millville begins at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 16, at www.promotocross.com. The motos can also be viewed on MAVTV and NBCSN.
